    Yeah looks pretty dumb to me. Boam is a top/middle order batter and part time seamer, not first string bowler, lower/middle order batter.

    Another Hundred to Cachopa, starting to like this guy.. Looks to be a handy bowler also. I wouldnt want him going to South Africa, but if he can get his first class average above 40 and get some OD runs before England come, he could be a chance. Our middle order is starting to build up a bit of depth with him, Brownlie, Flynn, Franklin and soon to be Ryder looking for spots.

    If you're going to pick a guy, pick him while he's in form - not 12 months down the track when it cools off a bit. He may well not be ready but he's more ready to warm the bench and be in the environment than Nicol is. The short ball issue - if there is one - can be worked on.

    Whats the point of picking him if he is going to sit on the bench and go cold anyway? He still hasnt even hit 1500 runs yet, he needs to build his experience up before being thrown in the losing culture of the Blackcaps. England are coming in Feb, it isn't far away.

    Better to have Bracewell, Boult, Southee and Wagner bowling short balls at him in the nets then some dibbly dobblies.

    He's not going to go though, I think Brownlie has earned his recall.

    he's got wheeler, milne and mathieson tbf

    edit: we should ask England if they want to bring the Lions down when they tour. England are pretty keen on their A programme and while we're not a huge drawcard for A series, experience is experience for their lads. Would be good for us to have a look at how a few players either handle a step up from the Shield or how much they've improved since we saw them last.

    The last series was a pretty good contest. Pretty sure in the final game we played the fastest attack we could field on a whim and Mitch M and Te Ahu Davis went ballistic. I wonder where Davis is now.

    A) There's a 3-day match against an SA XI B) He faces Test quality batsmen in open wicket and net situations C) The duration of the SA tour is only HRV Cup back here, which isn't going to fast-track his progress.

    Then he can come back in February and England play NZ A in late Feb in a four-dayer, and there's an A tour to England next winter.

    But yeah, Brownlie is a better pick given his handling of pace and the short ball which is the main threat in SA.

    88 overs so far at Napier, and only 2 of them spin, by Craig. It must be really green .... .??

    I'm gonna have a guess that seeing there's the absolutely nonsensicle number of wides in a four-day scenario (21) that it's swinging a fair bit and yeah, maybe green seeing it's the first match of the summer at McLean Park (I think).

    Which would obviously look even better for Cachopa, albeit it against a fairly innocuous attack.

    if it was green it must have flattened out quickly. nethula and milne are scoring a few runs. don't know how much luck they've had but still..

    Over in Auckland City and bumped into my cricket oracle. This lad is HB at his boarding school in 2012 , and has been off the scene cos he put his leadership duties first so unavailable for selection for International Cricket this year .His school are defending national school ( Gillette Cup) champions here but has recently picked up a knee injury and cannot play at Lincoln early next month.Disappointing as the lad is Captain this year and has won national school titles in 2009 ( NZCT Juniors) and in 2010 and 2011(Gillette Cup).
